Commonly, an actress has to dance around ten dozen trees and shed her image from girl next door to showbiz diva before she bags a heroine-centric role.
Rani Mukerji, however, is one beautiful exception. Although it didn't include a fancy banner or well-known actors, her debut Raja Ki Aayegi Baarat in 1996, revolved around her in entirety.
Eleven years later, things have only gotten better. The actress is ready with another Rani-oriented drama, Laaga Chunari Mein Daag. The banner is Yashraj Films. Abhishek Bachchan, along with Jaya Bachchan, Konkona Sen Sharma and Kunal Kapoor constitute the other acting credits.
The Arian star has several splendid performances to her credit, especially in woman-oriented filmi avatars. Girl with guns? Check. Girl in uniform? Check. Girl in period costume? Check.
rediff.com makes a list of these and other Rani avatars...
